Urban Decay sent over the Moondust palette for me to play with and it's been non-stop fun ever since I opened the package. It's a very colorful, sparkly palette with 8 shadows. The palette has a large, hinged mirror. A definite plus! As usual, Urban Decay packaging does not disappoint! Each shadow packs high shine, and can be worn wet or dry. The swatches below are dry swatches, swiped once, with no primer. They're pigmented, but do take some getting used to because there is fallout with certain shades. I personally don't mind that too much, but it's worth mentioning. When you wet these, they become more opaque and almost take on a cream to powder texture. Wetting them is the best way to get full-on lid color, but it does change the tonality of the shades a bit. That's actually the fun in this palette, because the shadows shift color with the light. Keep reading below for full swatches and to see a look I created with the palette.

This is a quick and minimal look for Fall. It's so easy to dress around all black and it's my favorite color to wear, so that's also a plus. Art Basel Miami begins next week. You can check out some upcoming Basel activations on my events page. Not much to say today. Sort of numb from Thanksgiving and in a turkey daze. Sorry for the picture quality. These are a bit overexposed and out of focus. :(
PS: I'm wearing Too Faced's Melted Chihuahua on my lips.

The Mac Nutcracker Sweet Holiday 2016 collection has launched! This is a heavily praised collection that's gotten a lot of positive exposure in the short time that it's been available. Why? because this is a collection with both eye-catching packaging and great products (some are already soldout). Swatches at the end of the post.
This is also a large launch, with a ton of different pieces. The Mac Magic Dust Eye Shadows are really high quality. They're long wearing, and almost velvety to the touch. Some new shades that we have not seen before are Dark Lullaby, Forward March, and Mustache.
Some of the most sought after pieces of this collection are the face compacts - the Nutcracker Sweet Copper and Sweet Peach face compact. Sweet Copper has basically been sold out since it launched. These are highlighter and bronzer duo's with a cream to powder, glowy finish. Still want more glow? Opt for the Mac Magic Dust Powder's.
